World War II was a brutal and long war. It showed the world evils unimaginable, and millions lost their lives because of it. Jews and other groups were sent to concentration camps and death camps. Because of it, the world was forever changed, but WWII didn’t just happen overnight. There are many factors that helped start the war.
In retaliation to Jews for killing a German policeman in self defense on July 31, 1940 the nazis carried out a public mass execution(“Holocaust”). This day was later named “Bloody Wednesday”. They were tortured by anxiety, were insecure of the present, torn between hope and despair, and felt helpless. There were many people who were persecuted during the Holocaust that weren’t Jewish: spouses of Jews, Roma Gypsies, resisters, priests and pastor, Jehovah Witnesses, political enemies, homosexuals, the disabled, and African-German descent. Spouses of Jews had to choose between getting a divorce or being sent to concentration camps along with their Jewish Spouse.
Many believed that communists were inciting rebellions in the form of labor unions in almost every state; focus shifted from the Red Scare when the need to focus on the war in Europe overpowered the supposed presence of a communist party. After World War II, tensions arose between Russia, then known as the USSR, and the United States. This tension and the events that followed came to be called the Cold War, one of its main events being the Second Red Scare. The Second Red Scare was more destructive than the first. During this Scare, the United States believed that it was constantly under attack from Communists, both from within and outside of the nation 's borders.
According to him, the Jews were liable for many of Germany’s issues. As Hitler’s following grew, so did his power over Germany. During his time in power, over six million Jews were killed in execution camps. Many people helped Hitler to
Each person acted in whatever capacity he could, and supported the Home Army in resisting Nazi terror. The Home Army conducted various strategies of subterfuge which included propaganda, espionage, sabotage, diversionary tactics, explosives, and assassinations of German officers. The Poles knew that if they were to be caught by the Germans, it would have resulted in their deaths, but they continued to fight anyway. The Polish nation had suffered more than a century of violent attacks, and occupation by foreign powers - resistance became second nature to them. They refused to
As one is in combat in WWII, everything becomes frightening and one relies on their country to make a good decision for the people in service. Fighting for a cause is on one’s mind, but also survival. By the end of WWII, Japan was nearly defeated by the Allies and the Nazi’s still had Jews imprisoned in concentration camps. The United States was determined to stop Japan from expanding and along their fight, the United States the terrifying circumstances that the Jews were experiencing. The actions made in WWII by the United States were positive based on their preparation for war, the atomic bomb, and the defeat of the Nazi’s in Europe.
Race, Hatred, and Violence The Holocaust was a devastating act that showed what being racist and hateful is all about. The Nazis and German authorities were the main reason for the killings of about six million Jews. They murdered homosexuals, Roman Gypsies, twins, the mentally ill or physically disabled, Jews, political opponents, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and priests.
The Nazi and the communist both relied on the perpetuation of fear, violence, scapegoating, and misinformation to accomplish
The countries that considered remaining inactive in the 1936 Olympics did so with good reasoning. Although nobody had genuinely felt the full effect of Hitler’s racism, there was still enough evidence for these countries to see his overall intentions. Up to this point in time directly before the games began, Hitler had kept these issues within Germany and had not imposed his ideals on anyone but the inhabitants of Germany. Hitler’s actions had not reached the global scale. It was not until World War II that other countries began seeing the full extent of the actions taken by the cruel German leader.
Because of Hitler 's actions over 11 million were killed, 1 million of them being children. I think that the Holocaust was horrible and wrong and hopefully we will not have to experience anything like this again. I learned a lot from the books Night and The Book Thief. They made me realize how horrible the Holocaust was and what it was like to experience it. The Holocaust was a gruesome time where millions were killed, people were tortured, they were used in experiments and families were separated.
That did not last long because when Germany started to get defeated they attack and got back their land. Some of the long term impacts are an effect of some of the short term impacts. A major thing that affect a short term impact is many Austria were killed because United nations failed to do anything to help them before it was too late. One thing that stands on its own is the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It was a major catastrophe that killed many American soldiers.
In 1939, war broke out between two forces, the Axis and the Allies. The Axis included the countries Germany, Italy, and Japan, but this alliance was more of a political relationship. Those included in the Allies alliance were the US, France, Britain, and the Soviet Union. Their relationship in a way was political, but they could depend on the other states in the Allies group whenever they need help. Germany attacked Poland, however President Roosevelt didn’t pay any attention to it until Germany’s leader, Adolf Hitler, encouraged Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor.
By engaging in certain actions, they only welcomed the Americans into the war front opposed to keeping them at bay. With the addition to the biological agents that were used to kill the livestock being provided to the allied front during the war, the first act of Bioterrorism can be seen in the world. And the damage inflicted to the French almost had cost them the war and allowed for a German victory had the Germans learned of the mutiny that had occurred on a French regiment. Warfare had been changed after that war, the war that would be terrible enough to end all wars, but in fact gave rise to a great deal of new technology
People that could have Stopped the Holocaust The Nazis killed two-thirds of all the Jews living in Europe. The Holocaust affected many people all around the world. It mostly affected the Jews the most. Many people including Allied countries, SS officers are responsible for this horrific event.
